Throughout our entire lives we have been asked what we want to do when we grow up, who are we now and who do we want to become? As we learn and grow ,our answers change and grow with us. We start to want different things and work on improving them in our daily actions.  Sometimes we don't know what we want, so we are stranded in an fictitious limbo; not knowing where we stand, not quite sure which way to go. We push ourselves and eventually find what we want to be, and how we will achieve that goal.
